We took a look. Follow this thread 👇🏽 1/n

Health apps were already a thing before the pandemic, #COVID19 has simply increased its use. Telemedicine & e-consultations are more widely used than ever before.

Enter: the #NationalDigitalHealthMission (15 Aug '20), the Universal Health ID, and various other programmes. 2/n
There are multiple issues: with consent & confidentiality, data privacy and security, exclusion, and private sector access to healthcare data.

Plus, health IDs continue to be created for those who have received vaccine shots, generally w/o permission. 3/n

#Scamalert

Thread on scams being run on unsuspecting users!

#AmazonScam
Immediately after a big Amazon purchase you will get a call, claiming to be from Amazon customer care, with rewards for your loyalty.
Offering various products ranging from free shopping to Harrier
They will ask you to shop for a certain amount again to be eligible. You will be asked to add products to cart and for payment give a UPI link or Paytm link to make payment.
When asked why not pay on Amazon itself, you will be told that that's not possible for this offer.
The big issues with this scam, other than the scam itself, is that the scammer have all your data, for the last purchase, amount, what you bought etc. Points to a big leak in Amazon or on one of their vendors.

NGOs are grazing grounds of FAKE activist by cooking up beneficiary data, did Shantha filed petition against #AADHAr notifications making it mandatory for social welfare schemes? Was she embezzling funds?

As an outsider in Hindi film Industry making film was not a problem for me as I never required funds. Principle to work for content based cinema with genuine creative talent made my road easy. Gave chances to new talents and never cared for mafias. Created my own world and space.
Though It was very difficult to exhibit the films initially even after spending for PnA. But then our films got international recognitions and we worked on our brand of cinema, then established makers In fact started looking to us to source content/talent/ideas
Basically don’t look for their acceptance, create your rules, space and life. As long as u are good and have the wherewithal no body can harm you. Infact they will try to friend you and look for you. And then you can ignore them on your will.

Finance Minister: "Migrant labourers will be able to access food through a 'one nation one ration' card no matter where they are. 100% national portability by March 2021. To benefit nearly 670 million people". Follow thread for facts:
Launched in April 2018, the One Nation-One-Ration-Card scheme should have given migrants access to rations wherever they were by now. The programme is under various stages of implementation, with some states more advanced than others & currently of little use.
Over the past year, One-Nation-One-Ration-Card was introduced in 8 states, extended to 4 more in Jan 2020. In Feb 2020, Ministry for Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution said it would be implemented in all 29 states from 1 June 2020.

When every Indian is asked to prove his nationality and his claim to Citizenship on the basis of documents - not just his own but also of his parents - then the State will have total control - ownership almost - of every citizen's life and liberty.
My father was a graduate employed in the Railways. I dont have a birth certifcate, never mind my late parents. the earliest document I can produce is school leaving cert from the lid 60s - and that does not have my full name on it. I'd have to bribe my way into #NCR
The whole #NPR / #NCR process seems ripe for #Corruption and #venality on a massive scale. I know many #NRI's (foreign citizens with #OCI status) who have an #Aadhar while being ineligible for it because they are non-residents. With bribery you can get any document you want

Never have I ever hated #Aadhar and the ruling government this much in my life.

As I was filling details at the hospital for my sister's death certificate, a nurse consoled me and asked for her Aadhar card for identification.

Contd..
I told the nurse that I have her driving license with me. But no, they want only Aadhar.

In times like these, you don't know where you are, let alone remembering where you kept all the ID cards.

Contd..
My sister's death was sudden, so we had access only to her phone. My mum couldn't remember where she kept her Aadhar card.

The hospital or the cremation ground people do not accept any other ID cards. It was literally a huge struggle in finding her Aadhar.

What a year it’s been for the Indian media -- resignations at ABP News, Cobrapost’s stinging Big Media, #MeToo and, of course, prime-time propaganda that played out as news.

Here’s a look back through some pieces on @newslaundry .
There was the annual Bhima Koregaon celebration with which came the annual reminder why Big Media either doesn't get caste or refuses to get it. newslaundry.com/2018/01/05/bhi…
.@thetribunechd came up with an excellent story on #Aadhar breach and was served an FIR for its pains.

#Thread on the Ghosts of #Aadhaar

Are subsidies, benefits and services from the Consolidated Fund of india being siphoned by the Ghosts and duplicates of Aadhaar?
In order to assign an #Aadhaar number at least two Primary IDs are required by the UIDAI - one as proof of identity and another as a proof of address. uidai.gov.in/enrolment-upda…
According to data provided by the UIDAI, in its Affidavit to the SC, only 60 crores could have used the voter ID, 29 crores PAN,17.37 crores a drivers license, 15.17 crores a ration card and 6.9 crores a Passport as their Primary ID to obtain a Secondary ID, the #Aadhaar

Why Rahul and Congress does not want #Aadhar(though it was conceived during UPA)

We want terrorist to get cell phones in India and do blasts, this will instill fear in people and we can play politics and make money hence say no to #Aadhaar

@Memeghnad @NigelBritto Yeah go and stand in que 2 get ration with your BPL card and let us know why you require #aadhar
Tell people that subsidy for gas will be given to all regardless of income...u cannot opt out of subsidy as there is no #aadhar of ur income and v cannot track your data
@Memeghnad @NigelBritto Tell that guy doing hawala transaction to continue with his work as we are incompetent to catch his work through bank
Sorry I forgot you don't want to link bank accounts to #aadhar
As your privacy is in danger
But there is no danger when filling ITR

Thanks a lot to everyone for all the support, encouragement and love we have received over the order allowing us to file IT-Returns without #Aadhar. I'm really glad we got lucky with a progressive bench that agreed to give relief to everyone instead of making it just about us.
This case has received more than it's share of attention in both print and social media. While I am definitely grateful, I would like to re-iterate that it is a part of a much larger struggle started and sustained by many activists and movements and needs to be seen as such.
The fight against #Aadhar cannot be selectively highlighted when privileged communities are affected (similar attention was received when the #privacy judgment was received and when deadlines for linking PAN, bank account and phone numbers were indefinitely extended)

There is nothing surprising. The very same method of finger print faking was demonstrated ere the Parliamentary Standing Committee that studied #Aadhar in 2011. @UIDAI knew this is possible. Biometrics is the least secure password of all (1/n)

Nobody with minimum understanding of / concern about security or privacy would plan a project like this.

and all those in power who decided to implement such a dangerous project like #Aadhaar , without any study or cost benfit analysis should be held accountable.
